The Bauer Kitchen
Need to book at 9:00 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Excellent service, friendly staff, and great food!
Food was outstanding. Loved having a whole menu dedicated to plant-based options as well as even options for gluten-free meals.
This used to be my favourite restaurant in Waterloo. They may have changed chefs or something because it just isn't as good any more. Not sure what happened.
Vegan scramble was tasteless and the food was cold. Nothing great about the breakfast
We had asked for a quiet area as we were celebrating our Fathers 95th Birthday, it was not very quiet. Other than that it was very good and our father appreciated the piece of cake with the candle in it.
We love that Bauer Kitchen now has a plant based menu for brunch and all day eats. The food is fantastic, service is always great and we love the atmosphere!
Delicious food. Great prices. Awesome atmosphere. Definitely recommend this tucked away treasure.
Atmosphere was awesome, our server Ty was a doll, super sweet and attentive. Food was incredible. Definitely would reccomend!
Jordan did a great job keeping us on time for our theatre tickets. As usual the food was wonderful.
Found service to be slow. Our server was great, he just seemed swamped. Took 90 minutes for lunch on a Tuesday.
The food and service was great. We really enjoyed our evening.
I’ve been many times and this wasn’t our best experience. Unfortunately the food was not up to par and the service was pleasant but slow.
It was a busy day in the restaurant. However, that doesn't make lukewarm food acceptable. Had to ask for butter and jam for my dry toast. Didn't get any jam. Had to ask for spoons to mix milk in coffee.
Waited long for our wine, spent $38 on steak that only came with a little but of mashed potatoes (no veg). Asked for sauce on the side instead of on the steak but it came on the steak.
Waited long, left hungry with my pockets empty.
Food and service were good.Portion size was very small.I had the New Year Eve special of King Crab Gnocchi and it was small,like very small.
Fantastic New Year’s Eve dinner! Great service and food. Nice way to start our evening.
Food was definitely not up to par. Was very disappointed. New Year’s Eve menu.
Should have had a bit more decorations for New Years but everything else was great
This was my first visit to the Bauer Kitchen and it didn’t disappoint. I was meeting a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time. Our server was wonderful, very welcoming and super friendly. We were seated in a quiet corner so we had no trouble catching up. Our food was excellent- the Bauer Salad is simply to die for. We will be back!
Great service, great food...what else can you ask for?
Nice place and good service. But Over priced food and drinks. French toast all by itself on plate? $19 for a personal pizza. Breakfast dishes way out of whack in cost. Pay $2 to add toast to a $16 omelette?? Which comes with no protein. Not impressed and they should do better as lots of potential. Don’t need to return.

Great food and service. You always know you’ll get a good meal when you go to Bauer Kitchens.
Best calamari that I have ever had. Server was great.
We had brunch on Saturday. The restaurant was very busy. The service was excellent the did was great. The only downside is the noise, it's almost impossible to carry on a conversation.
The Bauer Kitchen is one of my favourite restaurants in the Kitchener / Waterloo region. It's a fantastic place and the dishes are amazing. It was a little loud (the good kind) from it being a busy friday night and our servers were absolutely amazing. Always a warm smile, super helpful and always a pleasure!
Christmas get together with friends! Service was excellent and the food was amazing!! Great value for the experience!!
We will be back!!
Wait staff was very friendly and answered our questions with ease. She was efficient at bringing our drinks and at checking in with us. Meals were delivered by pleasant staff and were hot and very delicious!! Follow up during and after meal was excellent!!
Great experience, our server was fantastic and had a wonderful meal!
The food and service was top notch! It never disappoints and I look forward to going again soon.
Always an amazing time.
Bauer Kitchen is a reliable go-to in Waterloo for solid, well-prepared food in a vibrant setting, backed up by pleasant service. We regularly have dinner here during family visits, and we've never been disappointed. Menu is middle-of-the-road stuff from flatbreads to burgers to entrees like roast chicken and steak frites -- but most dishes add a creative accent, and everything is top-quality and well prepared. You really can't go wrong here.
No surprise complementary birthday dessert this time for my guest...disappointing considering she and I always celebrate our bdays here twice a year. Did not get out requested high top booth either.
Overall the experience was great. My only problem was that when I went to pay for my meal, my server A) accepted the total for me so didnt give me the opportunity to confirm the total entered for myself and B) took me to the percentage part of how i wanted to tip and brought it down to the highest amount there. She lost $5 more of a tip for this reason. I still tipped %15 percent because over all it was great
We were seated near the door by the cafe and froze ! Every time the door opened in the cafe it would send a blast of frigid air over our table.
The food was delicious and only a little big more expensive than the average meal. Keep in mind that the Bauer Kitchen serves gourmet food, so maybe price is very good.
Vegan menu was soooo good. The tempura California rolls were amazing, as was everything else we tried. Highly recommend.
Fantastic experience @Bauer with friends.
The new plant based menu is incredibly yummy! Thanks for offering these options.
Service was good. Food was cold. Didn’t enjoy my meal at all but I’m not a complainer. It was my choice and my fault. My salmon was way overdone and I didn’t like the flavours of the side dish.
Early Christmas date. Good menu; the food was tasty and well presented. The prices are a little high though, especially for the drinks.
